Composer Discussion / Re: Scandinavian and Finnish composers.

Surely you haven't heard Rawsthorne's piano concerti then! ;) They're delightful works, full of wit. His later works, though (e.g. Symphony no. 3 and Cello Concerto) are indeed devoid of any light or positive emotions.
I liked the 3rd Symphony, it sounds like nothing else he wrote and didn't register with me as a particularly dark piece.. Don't know the Cello Concerto. To my mind, many of Rawsthorne's pieces seem to have a very similar sound-world to them, you could identify the composer fairly easily on hearing a few bars

It's a while since I've listened to that. When I'm ready for a break from Sweelinck, i'll pop it in.

First impression: thorny, but I wasn't expecting it to be not thorny. The symphony did fall a bit more pleasantly on the ears than the concerto.

Preordered a physical media copy for $50.  Looking for a physical media copy of Minsoo Sohn's cycle, too, otherwise I will have to plop down a hundred bucks for the download, which I will happily do if I must.  Also hunting for Danny Boy 4.

New York will honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg with statue in Brooklyn

Maybe one day it will be torn down by a mob, who knows.
